Kanye West's Pastor Says Rapper "Was Tired Of Running From God"
(AllHipHop News) The Pastor mentoring Kanye West wants fans to know the rapper is serious about his conversion to Christianity.
According to Pastor Adam Tyson, Kanye's new mission to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ is not a publicity stunt.
Lately, Pastor Tyson has been mentoring Kanye behind the scenes, to help him get deeper into his Christian faith.
Over the past few weeks, Pastor Tyson has been spotted on stage next to Kanye during his popular "Sunday Service."
During an appearance on The Pure Flix Podcast, Pastor Tyson revealed Kanye sought him out because he needed "discipleship."
"The first time I talked to him the first Sunday in June, he told me, 'I got radically saved five weeks ago.’ I said, ‘Kanye, what happened five weeks ago?’ He said, ‘I was just under the weight of my sin and I was being convicted that I was running from God, and I knew I needed to make things right, so I came to Christ. I came out of darkness into the light.’”
Pastor Tyson conveyed a message to those skeptical and cynical about Kanye's newfound dedication to Christ: "Judge not, that ye be not judged."
“The fruit that I’m seeing is he’s no longer continuing in some of the sin patterns that he was before he came to Christ,” Tyson told The Pure Flix Podcast host Billy Hallowell. “Right now, every day, he is living and walking with God, so from what I can tell, there’s no reason for me not to encourage that and be a part of that.”
